The Muscle Testing
Presented by Dr. Vikas Dhawan, chiroprator and
Nicolas Desjardins, BHS, CPN, Neurotherapy Expert, PhD Student in Integrative Medecine.
Muscle testing should be one of the priority tools for all therapists or trainers.
It presents a practical method of muscle examination that makes it possible to check the strength of different muscles as objectively as possible. It is an essential step before any rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system. This method is based on the use of dynamic tests for each muscle.
Muscle testing is also:
- Useful for testing the ability of muscle or muscle groups to support the skeleton.
- Identify musculoskeletal dysfunctions and neurological problems.
- Easy to do and no equipment needed other than a massage table or yoga mat.
Useful for assessing dysfunctions at the level of:
- The walking reflex
- Mobility / flexibility
- Muscle symmetry
